BALTIMORE (AP) -

Jose Quintana allowed one run in seven innings, Gordon Beckham homered and the Chicago White Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 on Tuesday night to end a five-game losing streak.

Alexei Ramirez had two hits and scored twice for the last-place White Sox, who had lost nine of 11 overall and eight straight on the road.

Quintana (4-7) gave up six hits — including a solo homer by Steve Pearce — struck out eight and walked three. The left-hander was 0-3 in four starts since May 26.

One night after blowing a ninth-inning lead in the series opener, White Sox closer Ronald Belisario entered in the ninth with no outs and a runner on first. He surrendered a pinch-hit RBI single to Delmon Young before getting pinch-hitter Ryan Flaherty to bounce into a double play for his eighth save.
